COVER MIX: HEIDI

Every month we upload the cover CD given away exclusively on the front of Mixmag. Here's the May 2014 mix from Heidi. Stream it below

This month’s mix CD does something Han Solo first suggested in Star Wars: it flies Cajual. OK, so we might be paraphrasing, but as anyone who loves Heidi knows, there is no other label she digs more than Green Velvet’s seminal jacking house imprint. Elsewhere on the mix, she opts for equally jackin’ tracks from Armando, Abe Duque feat Blake Baxter and brings things nicely up to date with Jimmy Edgar’s mix of Claude VonStroke. Get your club on.

Get the Heidi issue of Mixmag, including the cover mix, here.

Heidi takes us through her Jackathon mix

1.
Induceve ‘Time To Begin’ (raggapella)
“I’ve been starting my sets off with this. It’s a nice way to start fresh”

2.
Armando feat Sharvette ‘Don’t Take It’ (Thomas edit)
“I used to play this religiously when I began to DJ. I love Sharvette’s message: empowering the ladies. It also has that nice, twisted, acid vibe”

3.
Cajmere & Gene Farris ‘Let’s Work’
“I’m a sucker for a deep voice talking about house. This lets the crowd know what’s coming later”

4.
Ben Sims feat Tyree Cooper ‘Get Behind The groove’ (Geeeman mix)
“Gerd AKA Geeeman takes a great track and makes it a bomb. I also love the Tyree Cooper vocal. How can you not want to jack when you hear it?”

5.
Jammin The House Gerald ‘Black Women’ (club mix)
“I have to send massive love to the guys at Dance Mania for letting me use their tracks on this mix. Butt-shaking madness”

6.
DJ Deeon ‘Da Bomb’
“Every time you play something by Deeon people drop their asses to the floor”

7.
Serge & Tyrell ‘Pump-O-Matic’
“You can spot a Clone track in any set because it’s louder, faster, and most of all filthy. Bomb after bomb”

8.
Green Velvet ‘It’s Time 2 Jack’
“Green Velvet has consistently made the most incredible techno records, but he has fun with it and it shows”

9.
L-Vis 1990 Pres Dance System ‘No More’
“This track murders (in a good way) the dancefloor”

10.
Armando ‘100% Of Disin’ You’ (Mike Dunn’s Houze Mixx)
“This is a true classic. Fierce and timeless”

11.
Tiga & Jori Hulkkonen ‘Trust Your Body’
“When I play this people start ripping their hair out and climbing the walls”

12.
Abe Duque feat Blake Baxter ‘What Happened?’ (DJ Glen remix)
“Years ago I bumped into Seth Troxler in an airport and we gave each other a bunch of music. This takes no prisoners!”

13.
Rob Amboule ‘Tension’
“This is new one-off of my Jackathon Jams label. It has a tougher techno/disco feel, great for when the night is winding down”

14.
Claude VonStroke ‘Lay It Down Re-Smoked’ (Jimmy Edgar Remix)
“Claude and Jimmy both hail from Detroit and that gritty background shines through. This is a sure shot”

15.
Cajmere ‘Percolator’ (ZDS Beatless Bonus mix)
“I’ll probably play some version of this until I die”
